    ...Holy crud, you CAN take Scrapmetal's sword off and he can hold it as a weapon! I never knew that before...

    Could someone explain to me in what way that resembles Rattrap? I see no semblance of him there, even allowing for the "pre-Beast" gimmick.

    Same deal as when they had the marks on the Soundwave protos and such?

    I hope we get the blue one in Cybertron as well.

    Rat trap is cool but I'm sure I'll never have it :(

    Hmm

    Wasnt a blue version of Scrapmetal released not too long ago? Or maybe that was in the Takara/Galaxy Force line.

    Anyhow, yea Scrapmetal looks nice, I think I will get him.

    Not too sure on BC Rattrap yet though. But I am going to get the BC2006 set, so he will be mine anyhow.

    Sigh...Botcon, repainting a Cybertron figure in "almost-original-BW-but-not-quite" colors does NOT make the toy a BW character.

    I thought the same thing...it actually looks really cool with the scar! I might have to break down and get it...dammit, just when I think I'm almost done collecting until Classics:( 

    I see a vague connection to Rattrap in that mold...but it's still by far my least favorite BotCon exclusive. The other look far better IMO...though I'm not going to the convention so my opinion doesn;t matter anyway.

    it's Rattrapish enough for me, but just vague enough that I can get away with calling it... Wheelie.

    Well, the "Battle Scar" look is actually done by Hasbro employees to discourage the figure from being stolen and sold, the final product would not have the battle damaged look, at least I don't think so.

    Now that I see the gimmick activated on Rattrap I realize he has more connection... in vehicle mode it's the same as his exhaust pipes in his Transmetal form... I like that. I'm slowly getting more interested in this figure set and that definately helps sell me on Rattrap
